Cleantech Geek Thoughts on the Move Series – At this series I will be producing short videos on the move from various locations.

I will be sharing with you my point of view, my experiences, insights and personal leanings.

You do that, by demonstrating that you clearly understand the problems of your clients and by providing them with a methodology and a road-map of how you will solve their problems with your products or services. So my advice, create sales processes that you and your team can follow, understand the problem you are solving and provide a clear pathway of how you will do that! Sell on value not on price?
